I could make some sort of commentary about how it’s symbolic of how society is trying to control women/it feels like we’re going backward, but then it’s like women are voluntarily wearing corsets. And honestly, this trend definitely falls in the Man Repeller arena of fashun guys don’t get. So I’m going to blame it on Fifty Shades of Grey, and that boudoir-inspired dressing. Whatever it is, someone somewhere (as in a designer sent a model in a corset down his/her runway show) decided to bring back the corset, and now rather than hiding it underneath dresses, street stylers are wearing it loud and proud over their layers. It’s definitely not an everyday trend, but it’s actually a flattering way to bunch in your layers. After all, the whole point is to whittle your waist and create that sexy hourglass figure, right? Not sure I’ll be trying this look, but in more of a belt form, it could work for work, or it’s a hot one to try for a night out.
